Red Fronted Gazelle / Eudorcas rufifrons
 Adult_Male_Redfronted_Gazelle_01  Red_Fronted_Group_01

The red fronted gazelle lives in open thorn bush savanna and vegetation-covered dunes south of the Sahara (the Sahel). There are several subspecies described. Since these gazelles are dependant on water availability they must undertake seasonal migrations within their range: north into the desert in the wet season, and returning to the south in the dry season. They prefer open habitats and hence may be found in close proximity with humans and their cultivated areas. There are not many institutions that keep this species, just one in Europe and some in North America. The IUCN classified the red fronted gazelle as VULNURABLE.
